Blockage

I've had the strangest thing going on lately. I used to love sitting at the computer and popping some short fiction, sometimes what might be just a chapter in a never-to-be-written book, and could do so effortlessly. Now? Not so much.

It's as if I look at the keyboard, ideas pounding at my head to be let out, and I might as well be looking at a piano keyboard- I can't remember what to do. For the life of me, I can't make the clever turn of phrase swirling around in the old grey matter complete the transistion to cursor and screen.

Anybody else ever have that happen?

I've had that happen to me a few times. Come to think of it, I'm in that state contantly...

I find the only way to be rid of it is to stop trying, and do something else. Like a cold Point Special and chinese food something else. Then later, I'm good to go. Liquor, MSG, and creative constipation...ah the joys of blogging!
